This dish is gorgeous and full of flavor. The fresh garlic and herbs takes ordinary veggies to another level. The red wine vin gives it zip. Makes a large amount so is great for dinner parties. Make sure to use fresh garlic and herbs, not jarred or dried. The fresh really makes this dish a standout.
